I have had such a great running week that I honestly am considering signing up for the Iron Girl 10K in September. It is two laps around Green Lake, which I cannot even imagine being able to do right now, but a month from now … maybe … I am thinking seriously about it!
I must admit that a twitter post Michael sent out a few days ago has had me walking on clouds, and could be responsible for motivating me to run so well! His support means so much to me and I want him to be proud of me for working so hard and also proud to show me off. He always told me I am beautiful, but my weight has been the one thing that always takes anything else down a few notches. She’s beautiful, but … yeah … the opposite of “butter face” – “butter body”
So when I see posts like this, the tears flow and my heart sings!
Further motivating me is the thought of being in a bathing suit again – because we are going to VEGAS right after my first 5K!! I am so excited! I am purposefully not weighing myself regularly because I want to focus on inches and stop the obsession with weight. I put on my bathing suit to see if there was any change from April – and it does look better! Vegas Baby!
So much is happening, so much change! My kids are leaving for college and it will be the first time since I was 20 years old that I won’t be a mommy at home 24/7! That is such a weird feeling. Michael and I will have all kinds of time alone together at home, I don’t even know what that will be like other than awesome! Change is good!
